Since you and your family spend so much time in and out of the kitchen, why shouldn’t it look its best and provide you with a simple, fluid design that enables you to have plenty of cooking space?
Regardless of your budget, there are a lot of cool ways you can decorate your kitchen and make it your own. Check out some of these ideas below.
Back on Track with Backsplash
One of the most difficult places to paint is the space between your cabinets and countertops. There’s not a lot of room, and you don’t want to get paint on your cabinets or appliances. Many homeowners are now opting for having these spaces covered in tile or backsplash. This addition is far less work than tearing apart all countertops and floors, and it can give the kitchen a whole new look.
While your cabinets and walls will be white, this does leave you room to use appliances, works of art and photo frames to add a splash of colour. Many blenders and mixers come in a wide variety of colours. Plus you can use nearly any dish, placemat or table runner to add colour.
The best part is that if you get tired of one or two colours, you can always change it up with different dishes. This is especially nice for those with plates and dishes for all seasons and occasions.
Are your ceilings high, but your cabinet space is limited? You might not have even considered storing up, but this is actually the perfect place to install hanging cabinets and dangling hooks.
Hanging cabinets gives you plenty of additional storage space and create instant room dividers. If your dining room is next to your kitchen, this gives you just a bit of privacy so you can continue cooking without everyone watching you.
If there’s one thing your pots and pans create, it’s clutter. Dangling hooks gives pots and pans their own special place out of the way, yet they’ll always be within reach.
Install or Upgrade Your Island
If you don’t already have an island in your kitchen, installing one could be the decoration you need. Islands make for a great place for the family to gather and cook together, and they often provide tons of extra storage and counter space. You can add accent lighting above them to create cool lighting affects at night.
Sometimes all you need is just a little more space. If you don’t want to entirely redo the kitchen, consider using a mobile island. These carts come in many different shapes and sizes, and when you’re entertaining guests, they can be used as serving trays.
